The Kraft Journal: Pretty Paper Challenge & Freshly Made Sketches #95

Happy Thursday Everyone!

It's another week over at The Kraft Journal and Freshly Made Sketches.  The Kraft Journal asked us to use pretty papers for our project.  At Freshly Made Sketches, Narelle has a fabulous sketch, and yes, this sketch is definitely Narelle's style!  No doubt about it! 

My card:

I started out with Crumb Cake cardstock for the base of the card, and the patterned papers are from October Afternoon.  I immediately thought of a daisy to add with these pretty papers, after that, everything fell into place pretty easily.  For the matting, I used SU! Crushed Curry cardstock, which I thought matched perfectly with my 2 buttons that I found in my stash.  I took a piece of white cardstock and embossed with SU! square lattice folder. This is one of my favoite folders.  I stamped the sentiment onto some kraft cardstock with Early Espresso ink.   

I'm also adding my card over at Word Art Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by,
